It’s absolutely true my dear brothers and sisters , that every single trial is a path stroked with the colors of dawn, though they seemed to be darker in appearance but as the dawn mingles with the day we realize that it’s a brighter tomorrow , isn’t it ? Let’s just for a minute remember all those moments in life where once we had lost all hope and felt that this is it! No matter what! Things will always be difficult with me, but One fine morning everything changes unexpectedly and you without an agony grabs the opportunity resulting in a success, isn’t the difficult moments made you stronger enough to grab the opportunity instantly without a second thought? Exactly! It’s so amazing to know that Allah SWT prepares us through trials, he doesn’t want us to get depressed but hold on to with patience and Dhikra-Allah.
One thing we all know “Inna Lillahi wa inna Iaihi raajioon” This Duwa in its self is a lesson with deep meaning , it says that “we all are from Allah and unto him we shall return” how true it is, AllahuAkbar! If we are to return to him then why should we be worried about these temporary trials? which are just a part of this life’s journey enabling us to be stronger and patient, let’s remember that Allah is all merciful , he would never put a burden upon us more than our carrying capacity. If we are leading a happy and a peaceful life then say Alhumdulillah! For being fortunate with a blessed life”Extend a helping hand to those who are less fortunate and are under trial because they have greater burden carrying capacity then us. It’s a true fact that we ignore and easily judge people for being afflicted with hardship , well it’s totally wrong on our part to be judgemental, we haven’t been through such a situation then how can we pass on our judgement for they being in hardship due to their bad deeds? Well it’s Allah SWT who is the master and a judge, we have been granted with a limited wisdom , we do not know anything about the acts performed or will be performed by that person who is in affliction, instead ! We should try to be a true Momeen Brother or Sister standing beside them helping with the surplus hikmah which is being bestowed upon us by Allah SWT, it is the Duwa of our distressed brothers and sisters that will increase in a taufiq Of acknowledging a Hidaya towards the implementation of hikmah for a blessed life in Duniya and Akhira “.
Dear brothers and sisters our trials are nothing compared to those who are without food , shelter, cloths , income and every basic need, it’s really hard and painful to imagine us in their position isn’t it?
Our every morning is a new tomorrow in our life with a Canvas wide open in front of us , ready only for us to fill it in our desired colours , absolutely as per our wish , think about it. There may be darker strokes sometimes but an addition of lighter shade fades the darker shade with its light, changing its appearance to a more calm, confident and full of life. Imagine the chirping of birds right at the dawn, isn’t it a beautiful feel, well offcourse it is , we tend to plan for a break sometimes in search of calm and peace, finding it in a lap of Jungle bliss. The traffic won’t give us such peace. Believe in your self , you are unique , confident , beautiful and an amazing personality . Make a note of implementing the lessons learnt after trials for a journey awaiting at the door of dawn which is a brighter tomorrow .
Be loyal and honest to your own self. Life will only look more brighter and beautiful.
